Citysearchers love the Pilates classes at Pilates Shop/Yoga Garage Inc. and rate the facility a five-star average:
- I have been doing Pilates at Pilates shop/yoga garage for one year and it has been life altering. My body is strong and fit, and the way I walk, run, think about posture, hold myself up, etc - has changed dramatically. The staff is warm and wonderful and I have met some really great people on my weekend workouts! If you live on the upper westside and want to do pilates than this is SURELY your place to be. I cannot say enough about how marvelous an experience it continues to be for me! – claud, Citysearch
- Peter, Phoebe, and the rest of the instructors at PSYG are truly fantastic. I have practiced pilates since 1994 and have never received instruction that is as challenging and beneficial (physically and mentally) as that which I get here. They know their stuff (all of them - I've never had such consistently strong instruction from all teachers at a given studio), and you will get personalized instruction regardless of whether you're in an individual session or a small group one. On top of the fantastic instruction, you'll also get to be part of what I have found is a really lovely and supportive community. I cannot recommend PSYG enough. – kgm111, Citysearch
